Michael Jordan’s first retirement caught the world off-guard, but his wish to pursue a career in professional baseball came out of left field – until it was later learned that his desire to play baseball was spurred by his father’s early vision of his son being professional baseball player. The Air Jordan Legacy continued on, as Michael wore cleated versions of his Air Jordan shoes, like this Air Jordan X Cleat. This rare sample features a black and white colorway, matched the White Sox uniforms, with a red Jumpman to make them certifiably “Michael”. The beauty of prestige of the Air Jordan didn’t transfer to his bat, as Michael’s performance on the diamond was, well, not very Jordan-esque. Take a look at this rare Air Jordan X Cleat after the jump and to add this gem to your Air Jordan collection, check out the auction from helloktty on eBay.
